National Picnic Day 2016

National Picnic Day celebrated on April 23rd every year. The word picnic is derived from a French book which was printed in 1692, in which the term picnic meant a group of people dining in an area and drinking wine together. Later that word had another meaning it meant an excursion or an outing in which the members carry food with them and share a meal together in an open place.

During the 19th century it happened that citizens of the London formed a picnic society to promote social gatherings. The picnics at that were considered potlucks and each participant had to provide with some kind of entertainment. The members of the Picnic Society enjoyed live music while eating there meal and having drinks in the crystal goblets. Today the National Picnic Day has a complete different picture. Now a day’s picnics are usually considered in a casual meal enjoyed on a comfortable picnic blanket. On National Picnic Day people get their blankets and baskets, grab a couple of sandwiches a bottle of wine or two and enjoy the meal outdoors with near and dear ones.

A perfect place with some lovable companions’ mouth watering meal and some sorts of music and sport is more than enough to make a perfect day and to celebrate National Picnic Day.
